:shock: I don't know what you're talking about, but you already hated me anyway, so I don't care.

BTW if someday you want to tell me the reason of your hatred, go ahead, I'll be pleased.

It cannot be. :shock: The picture is supposed to be "live." They recorded your IP and took it with the satellite they hang somewhere up there in space.

Wow, that’s pretty cool.
Here is my apartment complex and my building is on the upper left from the round swimming pool.

It is true Lenny. Most the trees in my back yard were gone. Infact, the trees and grass in my area are green now.

When was the last time you used the site? It seems like they recorded your IP and the address you're looking for, then the image won't change no matter how many times you try to check it up again. It happens to me. I guess it's only "live" at the first moment you check it.

The first time I use this site was the day you posted this topic. The last day I use this site is today and the picture is the same. It happens the same when I use google earth.

Actually saying truth, I have newer seen that page, since we are enemies, me my self(big strong and smart Hard-i) and tiny little Micro-soft. That thing, redirect me to http://intl.local.live.com/ when I try to open any of those link u guys post here. So it's total garbage, it's not just that it made by M$, but it's made so poorly that they don't courage to show it to me. They afraid, that I would laugh to them.

:shock: This is really bizarre. I wonder if this means the satellite in your area is not working, then. That's why you can only receive old images that are already there in the system.
